1868 ESTATE SETTLEMENT: [Madison Co, VA, Deed Bk 24/300, dated 11 Jan 1868] Marcus D Call, Administrator of estate of Elizabeth Garriott, deceased, deeded the house and four acres to Michael C Utz in 1868. Elizabeth Garriott acquired the house and four acres from Henry B Jones, William Withrow, James Withrow and William Gulley in 1842.61
On Route 603, west of Madison [VA], stands a home known by local people as the Garriott or William C Utz home. Mr Jones started the house and, when he ran short of finances, sold it to his brother, who completed it. The unfortunate Mr Jones built a smaller home nearer the road, which has been gone for many years.61
A date of 1824 appears on the west chimney, indicating that the present house was replaced by an older house because in 1803 William and Sarah Jones of Fredericksburg deeded four acres with appurtenances, which was part of 13 acres bought from Daniel Utz, to David Jones. Pascal Early acquired the house and land from the Jones.61
